Information has it that Chelsea have reportedly rejected a £50million from the Spanish giants.
The Brazilian winger has been on the media for several months concerning his future, thereby linking him to many top European clubs this transfer window.
Barcelona are trying to sign him to add up to their already wealth of experience squad, but Chelsea’s refusal to let go their priced asset is seen as a bonus and good news for Manchester United, who are also keen to reunite the player with Jose Mourinho.
Manchester United have expressed a huge interest in snapping up the 29-year-old attack minded player with Jose Mourinho hoping to reunite with him at Old Trafford.
Willian enjoyed an impressive individual campaign at Chelsea this past season as he registered 12 goals and 13 assists in all competitions. However, he’s yet to produce his best for Brazil in Russia.
According to Daily Mail, Willian’s representatives have been in Barcelona for discussion, but it is believed that Chelsea are not ready to sell.
The report also suggested that United are willing to bid a staggering amount above the £50 million that Barcelona paid to acquire his services.
However, it is also reported that Chelsea’s potential Manager Maurizio Sarri has informed Chelsea chiefs of his desire to use the Brazilian, and also made it known that he is in his plans to challenge Manchester City to the Title next season.
The Brazilian wizard is currently with the Brazil squad at the World Cup in Russia as they prepare to face Mexico in the round of 16.
